My shares have little or no value. Can I still donate them?
Yes. We accept donations of shares regardless of the value. So long as the shares can be transferred we can accept them.
The shares I hold are in an estate. Can I still donate them?
Yes. Please refer to our information on donating shares from an estate.
I’m not sure what I need to send you. What should I do?
I hold my shares in a corporate nominee account. How can I donate my shares?
Send us a copy of your shareholder statement, or the full details of the shareholding including your shareholder reference number, and we will send you the correct transfer form to sign and return.
I’ve lost my share certificate. Can I still donate my shares?
In most cases you should still be able to donate your shares. Send us details of your shareholding and we will let you know how best to proceed.
Can I email you a scanned transfer form in order to transfer the shares?
Unfortunately the registrars will only accept an original signature. Therefore you will need to send us the signed transfer form by post.
I hold shares in a stockbroker’s nominee account. What should I do?
Tell your broker that you wish to donate your shares to ShareGift. They will contact us to arrange the transfer.
Can I donate outstanding dividends and other cash entitlements to ShareGift?
Yes. Simply let us know that you wish to donate cash held in this way and we will send you the appropriate form.
I hold shares registered overseas. Can I donate these to ShareGift?
In some instances we can accept shares registered overseas, although we cannot always arrange the transfer ourselves. Send us details of your shareholding and we will let you know how to proceed. Transfers of US securities are often problematic, and we have to treat each donation on a case-by-case basis.
Will you send confirmation that the shares have been transferred?
No. We transfer thousands of shareholdings every year, and as a result we cannot confirm the completion of all transfers. We would ordinarily only contact you after the receipt of your signed transfer form if there was a problem with the transfer. If you do specifically require confirmation of the transfer being completed do let us know, however please note that this is not the information your require for making a tax claim. Please see the information here.
